Bruce Springsteen "Pay Me My Money Down" Liedtext

Well I thought I heard the Captain say,
Pay me my money down,
Tomorrow is our sailing day,
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Steering in a boat, clearing the bar,
Pay me my money down,
They knocked me down with a spar,
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Well if I'd been a rich man's son
Pay me my money down,
I'd sit on the river and watch it run
Pay me my money down,

Pay me, pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Well I wish I was Mr. Gates
Pay me my money down,
They'd haul my money here in crates
Pay me my money down,

Pay me, pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down

Well forty days and nights I've seen
Pay me my money down,
The captain worked every last dollar out of me
Pay me my money down,

Pay me, pay me,
Pay me my money down,
Pay me or go to jail,
Pay me my money down...
